If you’re a whisky enthusiast – this one’s for you! Diageo’s ‘The Singleton’ has recently released the brand’s oldest single malt to date in the form of the 54-year old 1966 vintage whisky. It will be presented in limited quantities of 235 bottles only and is expected to be rich and enigmatic at best.
Commenting on it, The Singleton Malt Master Maureen Robinson said, “Originally filled in 1966, this European oak cask is the closest to the end of the old slow-craft period that we have ever released. The old distillers of the past laid down this cask, and it is a privilege for me to be able to awaken their crafted spirits over half a century later with a final chapter from today,”
He further added, “I see it as a beautiful balance of the old art of craft and using our modern finishing to present a precious whisky of layered, balanced, and exceptional richness.” Maureen’s craftsmanship is expected to a new layer of exceptional flavor in this whisky, as per the brand.
The scotch is mellow and aromatic on the nose with notes of fenugreek leaf, parsley float, licorice, toffee, and sweet fruit that make it a bitter-sweet and enchanting concoction of sorts. Retailing at $40,100 per 750 ml bottle, the Singleton 54-Year-Old will be available in select markets, including the UK, USA, and across Asia in China, Singapore, and Taiwan onward June 2021.
